Do you prefer a [ ]male or [ ] female stamp or [x] don't care? [Just whoever you think fits best :)]
Do you prefer a [ ] fantasy or [ ] sci-fi stamp or [ ] don't care or [x] both?

getting to know you
Positive characteristics: Loyal, passionate, reliable, intelligent, funny, determined, eccentric, generous [with my time and my money], talkative.
Negative characteristics: Stubborn, sarcastic, cynical, lazy, overly loud or expressive [is that bad or good? :p], sometimes easily angered, self conscious, bitter.
Neutral characteristics: [I suck a neutral in general XD] Sometimes reclusive or a little anti-social.
Quote that describes you: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. - Oscar Wilde OR Half measures are the curse of it. - Hannibal Lecter.
Motto that you live by (if different from above): I don't really have a specific motto persay, but I always stay true to myself.

these are a few of my favorite things

Give an explanation if needed.
Color: Red, pink, blue, purple. My faves with colours change all the time :D
Animal: I adore dogs. I love sea creatures like whales and dolphins too.
Mythical creature: I'm really into Greek mythology so I love things like the Minotaur and saytrs and sirens :D
Extinct animal: I don't think I've really thought about this like EVER XD Mammoths are pretty cool :D
Fantasy novel: The Hobbit, the Harry Potter series or the Percy Jackson books. I don't read a whole lot of fantasy, but I do enjoy it :)
Sci-fi novel: I struggle with what counts as sci-fi sometimes. I love Only Forward by Michael Marshal Smith, I guess that could count as sci-fi. I started reading Death Troopers as well which is awesome.
Other novel: I love crime or thriller books. Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs are two of my favourite books ever. I like a bit of Stephen King too. Cell, Misery and Dreamcatcher being my faves.
Fantasy movie: Again what counts as fantasy? XD I really love Disney films. The Little Mermaid, BatB, Sword in the Stone, Aladdin, Mulan. Indiana Jones is a huge love of mines. I enjoy the LotR films too. Hocus Pocus.
Sci-fi movie: The first two Alien films. OMG LOVE. I used to think I didn't really like sci-fi :p Does Signs count as sci-fi? The original Star Wars trilogy. I liked the first Transformers film. Star Trek. Paul :D
Other movie: The Big Lebowski, Dog Soldiers, Blade/Blade Trinity, PotC, Kick Ass, Iron Man 1&2, Air Force One. Se7en, Sherlock Holmes, Magnolia, Hot Fuzz, Psycho, Scream quadrilogy.
Fantasy/Sci-fi tv show: Supernatural and the X-files :DD I watched Fringe for a while. Used to really love Buffy. Avatar: The Legend of Aang.
Other tv show: I love me some cop shows. CSI, CSI NY, Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-0. I love Bored to Death as well :D Arrested Development.
Time period: I kinda like the one we're in just now. But I also liked the sort of war periods of the 20th century. The style of clothes and way of life [minus y'know the actual death and destruction] quite appeals. I'd have probably liked the Georgian times with the crazy clothes and the wigs XD
Non-fantasy/sci-fi hero and heroine: Oh man this is tough. I watched Sunshine Cleaning again recently and I love Rose Lorkowski. She's a heroine to me :) I really love Sherlock Holmes too in all of his forms :)
Song with a sample of lyrics:

this or that
Are you more –there is room for both; please explain.
Abstract or Concrete: Abstract.
Adventurous or Homey: I'd say both. I love to travel and see and do new things, but I like to know I've got my bed waiting for me.
Agreeable or Distant: I can be both at times.
Cheerful or Melancholy: I got between both at the drop of a hat.
Clever or Pretty: Clever.
Concise or Wordy: Probably more wordy. I'm not particularly articulate and I love to rant/ramble.
Creative or Traditional: Creative.
Emotional or Logical: Emotional.
Extroverted or Introverted: Extroverted
Fighter or Lover: I'm fierce and I fight, but I do love a lot.
Flexible or Stubborn: Stubborn.
Free-spirited or Practical: Free-spirited.
Goody-two-shoes or Naughty: Naughty for sure XD
Helpless or Independent: Independent mostly. But I do sometimes need to rely on people.
Impulsive or Planner: Impulsive defo. I rarely plan ahead.
Mental or Physical: Mental. In both senses of the word :p
Modest or Vain: Modest.
Subdued or Vivacious: I can definitely be both.

test me; know me
The follow questions are optional – if you know the answer, please respond. If you are unsure, feel free to leave blank.
What is your Myers-Briggs personality type? Would you agree? ( Test ) The Spontaneous Idealist. I agree!
What are your highest intelligences according to Gardner? Linguistics and Visual/Spacial
What is your alignment?
What is your zodiac symbol? Does it fit you? ( Western / Chinese / Celtic ) Sagittarius - I think from various explanations its freakily like me. I'd never heard of the Celtic Tree one but I just checked it out and its quite like me too :D You are often misjudged as an outsider as you have a tendency to be withdrawn in spite of your extroverted nature. You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful. These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly (which you openly share solicited or otherwise). Oh yes, thats me! XD
Do you have any siblings? What order are you? I have one sister. I'm the oldest.
Would you consider yourself religious or spiritual? Not particularly. I was brought up with religion but I just don't believe anymore. I do like to think there is a higher power or somewhere we go when we die, but I'm not convinced. I am very open minded to the idea of spirits, souls or ghosts.

would you rather
These are very extreme opposites, meant to be difficult to choose. Pretend you're being forced to decided one or the other.
Sacrifice yourself to save your friends or save them by marrying the villain? Oh god...um...Marry the villain I guess...
Fight to the death or have someone else rescue you? It would depend, but I'd rather fight.
Live in a land of deadly dinosaurs, atrocious aliens, or mythical monsters? Mythical monsters :D
Wear a crown or corset or combat boots? Or all three? ALL THREE AT THE SAME TIME XD
Sneak into the enemy’s lair or break down the front door guns a-blazing? Sneaky sneaky :p
Have superpowers and have thousands of enemies or be ordinary and forgettable, but safe? Oh this is one is tough too...SUPERPOWERS. Gotta be :D
Live with your loving family, but never leave home or not have anyone close to you, but go on adventures? DAMN YOU! Um, I love my family, but if I'd never had them to begin with I'd take the adventures.

the hero in all of us
Would you travel in a group or be a loner? What role in the group would you fill? I'd probably be in a small group. I'd be the brains, but I'd still be able to take care of myself. Maybe like a tech or the one who navigates etc?
What would be your costume? I love Polyvore XD

What would be your weapon of choice? My biting wit :p And perhaps a nice gun.
Would you have a sidekick or pet? I probably am the sidekick.
Any special powers? I don't think so. I'd just be a bit of a bad ass :p
If you could invent any device, what would it be and what would it do? An ironing robot. I'm sitting looking at the huge piling of washing I have RN XD
What sub-genre would you be a part of? (romance/comedy/action…) Action/Adventure.
What conflict would you prefer? (man v. man, man v. wild…) Oooh...Man Vs Wild probably I guess I'll drink my own piss XD

look at me
Completely optional; post 1-3 pictures of yourself. Feel free to add pictures to the above sections to help voters know more about you. Please keep pictures decent and small; smaller than 500x500.

My hair is a bit longer now, but you get the gist :p

Fantasy: Definitely Indiana Jones
Sci-Fi: Han Solo- funny, sarcastic, cynical. I considered the Ghostbusters, but this- "Independent mostly. But I do sometimes need to rely on people"- really reminded me of Han.
